I offer a soft place to land in what can be a confusing world. I'll invite you to slow down, tune in, and explore your quieter and wiser self. It is human to struggle because, let's face it--life is tough. Feeling overwhelmed, trapped, fearful, angry, and sad is par for the course and the result of living in a fast-paced, stressful environment. This reality coupled with mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, loss, trauma, and/or addiction can sap our resources. We can end up loosing sight of what is important to us and feel a dampening of our spirit.

My favorite clients to work with are children and teens ages 5 to 18 as well as young adults ages 19 - 35. I have an innate ability to connect and communicate with children and teens while at the same time being able to form a relationship with their parents to assist in the work they are doing in therapy. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space that allows clients to be themselves. As a therapist, I show up authentically and establish a real connection using empathy, creativity, and humor.

I enjoy working collaboratively with adults and teens to create a comforting and safe space where insight into inner processes can begin to unfold. When we understand and have compassion for our particular reactions to things, we begin to live in a state of greater peace and become able to connect to our deepest and most unique resources. Learning to calm and soothe our body’s response to stress can be life changing and enables us to harness our greatest potential.

You’re probably looking for more than just talk in therapy. You are ambitious, highly-sensitive, creative, or a bit unconventional. Maybe you’re functioning well, but struggling with some aspect of your life: creativity, relationships, stress, anxiety, depression, past trauma, family wounding, or life purpose. Or, maybe you’re not functioning well and traditional therapy approaches have failed to help. You might suffer from emotional dysregulation, confusion, feeling "frozen" or "stuck" in your body, non-productive anger, impulsivity, chronic tension or pain, fear, and / or limitations imposed by larger society.

You have your share of life stress. There's almost no way to get around it in our fast-paced culture where work is exhausting, relationships and family require attention, and to-do lists are endless. You're going through the daily grind, juggling lots of balls, and trying to keep people satisfied. Meanwhile, you're coming unglued. You start losing your cool with others, become paralyzed with fear, or want to run away from it all. You might be exhausted, edgy, or have trouble concentrating. Maybe you self-soothe in unhealthy ways. You're tired of this but don't know what to do. This is where I come in and our work together begins.

My therapeutic practice involves a gentle, safe and collaborative approach in the treatment of trauma, anxiety, depression, grief and early relational wounds. We accomplish this process through psychodynamic theory and body oriented methods such as Somatic Experiencing which integrates neuroscience, mindfulness, and attachment theory. The nervous system is the pathway between the mind and the body where many of our past experiences and feelings are stored and often "stuck" causing emotional and physical pain. The goal of therapy is to release these unaccessed areas and strengthen one's sense of self, find resiliency and tolerance and have the capacity to build solid interpersonal relationships.

I will help facilitate effective communication, make sure the sessions are emotionally safe, and teach practical methods for getting your thoughts and feelings across.
